Retro Sci Fi by stayinwonderland Retro Sci Fi by stayinwonderland
My take on the retro sci fi/retro futurism genre.

I like the idea of visiting earth in the future when it's uninhabitable and you need to wear a space suit (that has a glass bubble helmet :p )

Comments and questions please :D

This reminds me of the Time's Eye books by Arthur C. Clarke 

Such great books, I love it. This image is exactly what I imagine it to by like. 


Amazing job on your work :D

I've seen many sci-fi like this (film posters and book covers), so as an homage, this is absolutely wonderful. The suspense, the expectation, the anticipation as the main subject, and you got it right.

I bet if you put a laser micrometer on this you'd find it's a perfect sphere. I mean a perfect sphere -- down to a thousandth of an inch. That's a message in itself.

I love retro sci-fi. Nowadays, it's all explosions and none of the things that made the classics great.

thought this was going to be a reference to the movie Sphere.
nice image all the same. the reflected blue in the middle of the orange/pink terrain was eye catching.
